Sahara Mamatas


I want to create a network for Migrant Domestic Workers that will help keep us safe, protect our rights and to be able to provide immediate assistance when needed.

My Story

My name is Sahara Mamatas, I am 29 years old, and I was born in the Philippines. Poverty and living in a remote area didn't stop me from dreaming and exploring the world. In fact, it became my inspiration. I finished my studying through the help of a Government scholarship for the indigenous people, as I believed knowledge is power. Since 2015 I have tried my luck abroad and worked as a domestic worker to help my family. I never stop dreaming but life as a migrant here in the UK is never easy which makes it almost impossible for me to move freely.



I work hard in order for me to survive in the everyday battle of my life. Now I am an active member of The Voice of Domestic Workers, I have the opportunity to get my voice out and participate in the campaign. Being in the Future Voices will help upgrade my skills and develop my other ability so I could be an effective advocate for the rights of Migrant Domestic Workers.

Never underestimate the humbleness of a woman, because once our pride awakens, we will shake you!
